Full description
You’ll start your adventure with an early pickup before heading to the elephant sanctuary. ElephantsWorld is a conservation organization dedicated to helping these intelligent and proud creatures. Once there, you’ll listen to an introduction and safety briefing before preparing food for the elephants. Get down and dirty and give the elephants a mud bath before heading to the river to rinse them off. There will be some time to shower before you tuck in to a delicious buffet lunch. After helping yourself to delicious Thai dishes, feed the elephants the food you prepared earlier. At Erawan National Park, you’ll trek through the lush forests and caves before arriving at Erawan Waterfall. This famous seven-tiered beauty with its emerald pools is a great place to take a dip or simply relax and enjoy the scenery.

Visiting the Elephant Sanctuary and Erawan Waterfall are amazing experiences. I highly recommend taking the time to see them. Our trip took longer than 12 hours. We were picked up at 6AM and brought back to our hotel at 8:30PM. Our driver did a great job getting us there and back, but he did not speak English. This left some confusion for us on what to do when we got to the waterfall. I also recommend looking up the waterfall yourself to see if you can handle the hike up. It is worth it, but exhausting.

Simply one of the best tours I’ve done in my life. If you come to Bangkok you must do this tour. Being among the elephants in their natural habitat, making good for them and bathing with them has made me speechless and grateful for eternity. The erawan waterfall was also a nice addition to the tour. Can’t miss this tour if you come to Bangkok!!

Excellent experience that this day of visits. The morning devoted to the elephant reserve will obviously remain an unforgettable memory. The proximity to these splendid animals (we literally bathe with them) and their observation enchanted me. I liked the second part of the day, at Erawan Falls, but the time spent there is too short: we barely have time to climb to the 7th level and come down again before we have to leave. No time to swim! This is due, I think, to the only other defect of this offer: the travel times, which are VERY long (6 hours of road f and n all), which obviously encroaches on the day, which is very long. However, I highly recommend, especially the part with the pachyderms.
